Primark is opening its first store in Cornwall.

The 50,000 sq ft store at Lemon Quay in Truro will be the size of a football pitch is expected to open in 2016.

Officials say the delay is down to building work which needs to be completed first and stores currently occupying the units having to be found new space.

Schroder UK Property Fund have revealed bosses have agreed a 20 year lease, which it says will transform Truro’s shopping experience.

Harry Pickering, Investment Manager for Schroder UK Property Fund, said: “Having acquired Lemon Quay less than a year ago, we are extremely pleased to be welcoming such a big brand to Truro.

"The letting will significantly boost the city centre’s shopping offer and cement Truro’s reputation as Cornwall’s retail hub. Primark is a really exciting addition for Truro and a popular choice with many of our shoppers and we look forward to welcoming the brand to Cornwall for the first time.”

Loic Rich, Mayor of Truro said: “Truro City Centre is an important retail centre and this will strengthen our position, with more jobs, investment, and a range of benefits to the local community.”

Neil Scott, BID Manager, Totally Truro, said: “Truro’s deserved reputation as the premier retail destination in Cornwall and indeed, one of the best in the south west will be further strengthened with the arrival of Primark.

"The strength of Truro’s retail offer and experience is its unique mix of independent shops and well known high street brands, but there are a few gaps in this mix with Primark being the most talked about retailer that is currently not in Truro. The arrival of their new store in Truro will bring new shoppers into this great little city.”

A spokesperson for Primark (UK) commented: “We are delighted to be part of this very significant development in Truro City Centre”
